    Product Description
    Type: water-slide decals
    A generic marking set that can be used across a variety of vehicles fielded by Ministerstvo Vnutrennikh Del (MVD - Ministry of the Interior of the Russian Federation) troops, during their battles in Chechnya. Also included are useful miscellaneous markings found on BTRs in the same theater of operation.

    Although not often seen, the left red and yellow creature markings (mirror imaged from the right) do exist! The typical MVD logo is often on the left spot, but on some BTR-80s, they are replaced with mirror imaged creature markings. The rearing horse emblem is probably the widely used marking in BTR-80 kits nowadays, but on this set they are better and sharply defined. As the designs were painstakingly captured from the proper set of markings.

    How to apply water-slide decals:
    1. Preparation: to achieve better result, a gloss or semi-gloss coat is very important. It will make a smooth layer which the decals will suction to and make it much easier to apply and set them.
    2. Cut out the decal you need (do it on cutting mat)
    3. Grab the decal with tweezers, place it on the surface of the water and leave it for about 20 seconds.
    4. Remove the decal from the water and place it on paper towel to remove any excess water.
    5. Apply decal solution to the part where the decal is to be placed.
    6. Slide the decal off the backing paper on to the model. Using a paint brush or cotton bud is a good way to do this without damaging the decal.
    7. Use the brush, knife or cotton bud to position the decal. Using your paper towel, gently dab the decal and soak up the excess water (decal softner is also recommended at this stage. After applying softner, the decal will suction to the part and flatten out smooth.)
    8. When the decal is completely dry, give another coat of varnish or Klear/Future to seal it.
